Is it ok to wipe inside my newborn vagina if sho have poo in there my baby has poo in her vagina is it ok to wipe it out with a rag
Her : Her vagina should be so tiny at this point, that it is likely only at the mouth of the vagina. Don't insert anything into her vagina. However, you can gently wash off the area, to remove the feces. I wouldn't use a rag. You could use a baby wipe or a soft baby washcloth. Use tepid or lightly warm water.

Douching is not recommended, as it washes away 'good' bacteria, protective secretions and changes the ph, thus making it easier to develop irritations and infection.

Tube to the uterus: The vagina is tube that connects the vulva (the outer part of the female genitals) to the uterus, or womb. It is between the urethra (where urine comes out) and the anus (where bowel movements come out).
